April 4, 2016 Reading with an Author

I had the honor to photograph an authors event at Temple Beth Sholom, in Roslyn, this week.

The featured author was Arlene Alda, wife of actor, Alan Alda. Mrs. Alda has not only penned 15 children's books, she is also a successful photographer. Her new book, Just Kids from the Bronx, an oral history from 64 different Bronxites, is fantastic! She gave us a sample and we were all sucked in! My copy is on order! 

I also had a few minutes to speak personally with Mrs. Alda, and what a great lady.... Charming, witty, intelligent...No wonder she and Mr. Alda have been marries for 59 years! It was a great night! 

March 20, 2016 Glen Cove St. Patricks Parade/ St. Baldricks Event

First Day of Spring, it threatened to snow..... but it didn't stop anyone from joining in the fight! The fight against Childhood Cancer!!! I joined the Nicholas Pedone Foundation who marched for Childhood Cancer Awareness and I witnessed an unbelievable St. Baldrick's event. We live in such a great community who become family when we need them most.

I also had the honor in meeting, talking and photographing some amazing children and their families...They are Survivors,  Warriors, Heros...the Bravest! Thank you Josephine Pedone for showing us that it does work!

Here are a few photos.....

BTW, it was a gorgeous day..thanks to our special angel, he made sure the snow stayed away.
